England international Danny Welbeck was forced out of Sunday’s clash against Manchester City at the Etihad stadium.

Welbeck was substituted just 24 minutes into the game after picking up what Wenger said could be a knee cartilage injury.

Welbeck recently just returned from a 10-month knee injury and it looks like his chances of appearing in England managers Roy Hodgson’s list which will be released on this Thursday.

Wenger admitted he is a bit worried admitting Welbeck might not be available  for the tournament if his scan comes out bad on Monday.

The Frenchman said: “Danny Welbeck has a knee problem and I hope it is not too bad.

“We have to wait for a scan. I hope it is not bad news, that it is not a meniscus. He has a little sign of that.

“Danny is a strong boy and not a guy who moves out quickly.

 “We tried to keep him on the pitch and straight away, when he tried to move on, he said ‘No, it is impossible’.

“At half-time I looked at him and he was very down, so he must have pain. Let’s hope we have good news tomorrow from the scan.

“Good news is that he will not be out for the Euros and bad news is that he is out for the Euros, but I don’t know. I don’t know if it is a lateral meniscus.

 “I am an optimist, but let’s wait until we have a real good diagnosis.

” Welbeck appeared to injure himself after attempting to tackle Bacary Sagna in the 23rd minute.
